... and he only has a fortnight to find the key

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


It’s well known that ‘political disunity’ is death, but a more certain and more agonising death is ‘political uncertainty’. Try to placate both sides and you will win the support of neither side.

This fact became crystal clear following the attack on Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Most politicians would have flinched at the rabble of frenzied females who descended on DC. Most would have retreated to the safety of their well-guarded offices.

But Donald Trump did not flinch, he took to the rabble head on and planted his foot exactly where he said he would plant it… on their throats, and slap bang in a right-of-centre Supreme Court.

Scott Morrison should take heed of Trump’s now ballooning popularity that is reflected in massive increases in small-sum GOP funding since Kavanaugh’s affirmation. Trump with Kavanaugh’s agreement purposefully and cleverly allowed a far-Left mob of man-hating fake females to expose themselves as the quasi quislings they are, and then even gave them an extra week to allow uncommitted voters to express their disgust and scamper across to the GOP.

That’s what happens when a non-swamp-dwelling politician stands firm for what he believes in.

When you stake a claim as Trump did you must vigorously defend it. If you don’t, it will indicate there is no gold in your claim worth defending.

PM John Howard was a squeaky-voiced, annoying little unattractive gnome, but he defended what he stood for with a vengeance. So even people who disagreed with what he stood for voted for him on the strength of his trusty resolve.

Our Liberal leaders have not learnt that yet.

Scott Morrison cannot resolve to lower energy costs and still honour the Paris Accord. He cannot pretend to stem Islamic immigration by simply shifting them to country areas. Tony Abbott could not have resolved to reform the ABC and still funded it. It’s one or the other.

Donald Trump has shown the billabong dwellers how to hit a home run

…but it’s doubtful our conservative leaders even follow baseball.



For starters ScoMo needs to lock that horrible selfish narcissist TurnBull out of his life: what in the world same over him sending him off as some sort of puffed up emissary to Bali?

Now that "Parliamentary Privilege" has been invoked to remove the email letters from public view, does this mean that public servants can with impunity leak anything they fancy? bit of a worry.

Morrison is just another U.N. plant. Don't expect anything. He drowns every conversation in a torrent of blather. Me, I like the strong silent type which he is not. Walk away from the Paris nonsense, regather the $444 million from the Left, which they will use to fight Australians for years to come, abandon WW2 submarines, and I may reconsider, but it ain't going to happen.

Just watched Operation Finale on Netflix. A 2 hour film. Good show.

Scomo wants more immigrants ! what an fat imbecile he is

"That’s what happens when a non-swamp-dwelling politician stands firm for what he believes in."

That's the problem though, Larry. Our parliaments are full of swamp dwellers.

There's a fair bit of "Flannery" about today in Sydney and it's not warm, it's bloody cold!

North Goonyella calls force majeure
PEABODY Energy has advised its customers of a force majeure event at its North Goonyella coal mine.

Mining there has been suspended while management there fights a fire that started near where its longwall had been operating.

One of Queensland Mines Rescue Service's mine inertisation units has been deployed to the site to try and put out the fire.

That unit is being operated around the clock by two six-strong teams drawn from miners around the area, overseen by QMRS experts.

"We will assess the implications as time goes by and provide an update when we have more information to do so," a Peabody spokeswoman said.

"Peabody continues to work with a broad team of industry, union and technical experts to respond to the fire at its North Goonyella mine.

"It is too early to assess the extent of impacts from the fire or say with certainty when full e...

UK: Schools threaten social services referral if they don't let their sons wear skirts
Parents who refuse to let their son wear a skirt to school may need to be referred to social services, a council's guidance has advised schools.

Mothers and fathers who dismiss a "gender questioning" child's requests to change their name could also be a trigger for concern, according to Brighton and Hove City Council's "Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit".

It comes after warnings that schools are "sowing confusion" in children's minds by over-promoting transgender issues, and that children are being encouraged to "unlearn" the difference between boys and girls.

The guidance advises teachers on how to handle a number of different scenarios, including if parents say: "I refuse to allow my son to change his name or wear skirts".
Comment: We've come to the point where parents can no longer transmit their own values to their children. The state is in charge.

Foreign investment/ foreign ownership/ foreign takeover is a wonderful thing in Australia especially if you are the Communist Chinese Government. They have been allowed by the imbecilic, treacherous Australian Government duopoly including the equally traitorous and demented FIRB) to cherry pick our best Agricultural land, resources and utilities. This includes "strategic" assets such as the Port of Darwin among others. Our wellbeing, National Security, Sovereignty and Independence are the last things to concern our wonderful pollies. Is it any wonder they have recently introduced legislation protecting themselves from future charges of treason. Their latest trick is to hand over our "Australian owned" LNG pipelines (another strategic asset) to Communist Chinese control as well. BTW. Our darling Little Johnnie “stars” in the a little known debacle concerning the handover of Australian “Gorgon” Gas to the Commo Chinese Govt for a pittance with No increase price per year as well as an absence of a Gas reservation policy. What a patriot …..

Russians Have Hacked Theresa May and Reprogrammed Her to Do Stupid Dances
As the cyber-exploits of Russian military intelligence agency continue to come to light, there are increased concerns that the UK’s own Prime Minister has been hacked and reprogrammed to randomly do stupid dances. Eyebrows were first raised during an African trip when instead of holding trade discussions, the PM began shuffling around with some children. Concerns heightened last week at the Tory conference when she strutted onto the stage like a drunk uncle at a wedding disco. “I can’t think of any reason why a human being would voluntarily choose to move like that,” said security expert Simon Williams. “So, my suspicion would be that she isn’t actually voluntarily moving like that, which leads to the terrifying possibility that the Russians have hacked into the Prime Minister.”

Another terrorist attack in Ootha. 2 women and 2 children were abducted after 3 armed men invaded a home, brutally bashed a 68 y.o. man and burnt the home to the ground. Three men aged 44, 29 and 23 have been arrested. No Muslims were involved, just a good old fashioned Aussie domestic violence incident. Fortunately, no one is dead. But after 6 women died in 7 days recently, one has to wonder what would be the response had the perpetrators been swarthy Muslims rather than white Aussie blokes.
